Pyongyang ridicules Park’s ‘dumb’ speech
(03-27 11:09)

North Korea issued a scathing personal attack on South Korean President Park Geun Hye, accusing her of breaking a moratorium on cross-border insults and behaving like a “blabbering'' peasant woman.
The attack referenced a speech Park made Monday at a nuclear summit in The Hague in which she voiced concern that Pyongyang's nuclear material could end up in terrorist hands, and warned of a possible Chernobyl-style disaster at the North's main Yongbyong nuclear complex.
A spokesman for the North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) said Park's remarks “violently trampled'' on an agreement reached at rare, high-level talks last month for the two Koreas to stop “slandering'' one another.
If Park genuinely wants to see improvements in inter-Korean relations, “she first has to stop rambling recklessly and learn how to speak with discretion,’’ the spokesman said in a statement carried by the North's official KCNA news agency.
“Even if someone else wrote the dumb speech for her to read from, she should at least know what and what not to say... in order not to embarrass herself.
“She should realize she is no longer a peasant woman blabbering to herself in the corner of her room but the occupant of the [presidential] Blue House,'' he said.--AFP
